Welcome to one of the most fantastic tourist designations on the planet. Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, offers both white sand beaches with crystal-clear water and a tropical rainforest. If you are planning a Costa Rica Vacation, this is the one place that you can’t afford to miss!
Manuel Antonio is just one of Costa Rica’s 20 national parks, but it is the smallest, making up 1700 acres. The village of Manuel Antonio sits right outside the National Park, which is open every day of the week except Mondays.
This beach is located only 100 miles south of San Jose, which is only a three-hour drive or a 20 minute plane ride. The park itself is renowned for including many species, such as the endangered squirrel monkey, the white-faced capuchin monkey, raccoons, pelicans, and kingfishers, among others. This is the ideal spot for nature-lovers.
The area is also home to many up-scale hotels and resorts, so tourists can enjoy the tropical nature without forgoing modern conveniences and style. I would personally recommend the hotel Si Como No, which embraces the biodiversity of Costa Rica by creating an experience for the guests that is based on the Costa Rican culture. The rooms are built right into the trees and the hotel offers several restaurants for fine dining. The staff is exceedingly friendly, as evidenced even by the name of the hotel, which in Spanish means, "Yes, why not?"
However, the area also has a plethora of hotels with a wide range of prices that will fit into every wallet, so money is no obstacle. In addition, various Costa Rica Vacation Packages are available.
In addition, the Manuel Antonio area offers many activities for any type of adventurer. Just to highlight a few, these activities include white water rafting, sportsfishing, diving, snorkeling, wave runners, sailing, jungle tours, horseback riding, and canopy tours.
Don’t plan a trip to Costa Rica without putting Manuel Antonio at the top of your list!
